Why doesn't Windows version of S.T. have "reset" or "reset to commit" as options on files?

I normally use SourceTree on Mac, and when I want to discard local changes and restore the original checked-out version, I right-click on the file in the staging area and click "reset" and "reset to commit".

I'm a computer science tutor and one of my students uses SourceTree on Windows. He has an unfortunate tendency to reflexively change any file he looks at by inserting or deleting some white space, not realizing that he's creating possible conflicts with my files.

So first, I'm trying to get him to stop doing that.

Second, I want to discard his local changes so he can commit and pull without creating needless conflicts. But the Windows options are different. such as "remove" and "discard".

What's the right way to discard local changes or revert a file on Windows to the checked-out version?
